Comedian beloved the late Bill Hicks to perform in Narberth
2:16pm Friday 27th September 2013 in What's on
FOLLOWING a successful evening in September, Span Arts has booked a man considered “a comic genius” by those who know, alongside two unusual companions, for another evening of world-class comedy at the Queens Hall, Narberth, on Thursday, October 10.
Nick Doody’s esteem is so great that he was personally requested by the acerbic US comedian Bill Hicks to support him on his final UK tour before Hicks’ death in 1994, and has since been commissioned by Random House publishers to write a study of the late comedy legend.
Doody himself was worryingly described in the Independent as “a drunken, gagged-up Richard Dawkins, brilliantly shooting down superstitions with songs and sucker-punchlines.” Having written and performed for the BBC, Channel 4, ITV, and Radio 4, his confrontational humour obviously works.
Joining him will be perhaps the world’s only goth, vegan, lesbian, transsexual comedian, in the shape of Bethany Black.
Meanwhile, Ro Campbell will be on compere duties, the 2010 winner of the Scottish Comedian of the Year Award… even though he comes from Australia.
Doors open at 7.15pm, show starts at 8pm. Tickets £10 (£8 members and concessions) are available at www.span-arts.org.uk or call 01834 869 323
